My best friend told me I should read the book, “The Obstacle is the Way.” I chose the audio version and LOVED it. The life I live is chock full of adversity and obstacles but over the past couple of years, I have chosen to think differently about it. Stress doesn’t have to be stressful. Sure, it is easy to let emotion to overcome us. I can choose my perspective and the action behind it. I have free will, that gives me the breadth to decide not what my fate will be, but how I will behave and think about the circumstances. I have to do this every day, and some days…well I am not so good at it.
Amor Fati, love your fate. Live in gratitude, no matter where you find yourself in life. Do not take your will for granted. Act on it. This is living powerfully and with meaning.
